(FT5) Yes, the Olympus E-M1III uses the same 20MP E-M1X sensor

The new E-m1III that will be announced in mid February will use the same 20,4MP E-m1X sensor. To recap this is what we know so far:

  • E-M1III to be announced in mid Feburary…maybe with the new 12-40mm f/4.0 lens
  • 20.4 sensor
  • E-M1III Has one more joystick
  • Same battery as E-M1II
  • New processor
  • Can do Handheld High Resolution shots

(FT4) Olympus will also launch the new 12-45mm f/4.0 MFT lens with the E-M1III ?

I am 100% sure in mid February we will get the new E-M1III. But there is also a 50% chance we might get the new 12-45mm f/4.0 MFT lens too! Hope I can confirm this via other sources soon…

It’s unclear yet if Olympus will also announce the final pricing of the 150-400mm MFT lens (image below). I heard this lens will be production ready for this summer only :(

(FT5) First Olympus E-M1III specs info: It’s an E-M1X without the built-in grip!

The image above is the first leaked piece of image of the new E-m1III

Two sources confirmed the E-M1III will be announced in mid February. The first sources told me the E-m1III is a sort of E-m1X without the grip. The second source shared few more details:

– Has one more joystick
– Same battery as E-M1II
– New processor
– Can do Handheld High Resolution shots
